Product Description

Love Marius Gabriel and Gill Paul?

An historical mystery from internationally bestselling author Colin Falconer that you won’t be able to put down.

'Murder, scandal and romance all play their part ... plausible and engrossing.' - Woman's Day

Shanghai 1921: When Michael Sheridan jumps into the Whangpoa River to save a Russian refugee, his life changes forever. The girl bears an uncanny resemblance to Princess Anastasia,

But she remembers nothing of her past. Could she really be the royal princess? Did she survive the brutal massacre of her family by Bolshevik revolutionaries two years before?

Unravelling the mystery of Anastasia's identity and past takes them both from the streets of Shanghai to the decadence of pre-war Berlin, from the London of flappers and Charlestons, behind the grim curtain of Bolshevik Russia and finally to New York just before the Wall Street crash.

It may also cost him his life.

Colin Falconer is an internationally bestselling author, with over a dozen historical novels that have so far been translated into 23 languages.

WHAT READERS AND REVIEWERS ARE SAYING ABOUT COLIN FALCONER'S 'ANASTASIA'

'Falconer's grasp of period and places is almost flawless ... He's my kind of writer.' - Peter Corris, The Australian

'Falconer weaves a pacy story of obsession, love, greed and corruption ... Really well done." - Sydney Morning Herald

“If you’ve ever wanted to walk the streets of early twentieth century Shanghai, Berlin, London, or New York, then you will love the wide landscape of this novel. All the big cities come to life with all the political and economic intricacies of that time. From the grittiest of inhabitants, to the most decadent and smug, Falconer gives you a view into the turmoil of the Great War”. *****

About the Author

Colin Falconer emigrated to Australia where he helped a mate establish a new advertising agency. Colin went to Sydney and worked in TV and radio and freelanced for many of Australia's leading newspapers and magazines. But he got his dream, publishing over a dozen novels in the UK and US and having his work sold into translation in Brazil, Belgium, the Czech republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Spain and Turkey. He lived for many years in the beautiful Margaret River region in WA, and helped raise two beautiful daughters with his late wife, Helen. While writing, he also worked in the volunteer ambulance service. "I'd be at my desk typing, then thirty minutes later I might be crawling into an overturned car or running along a beach with the oxygen for a near drowning. It was an interesting time." His marriage ended in tragic circumstances, a story he has told in 'The Naked Husband, ' and its non-fiction sequel, 'The Year We Seized the Day, ' written with a writing partner, Elizabeth Best. He travels regularly to research his novels and his quest for authenticity has led him to run with the bulls in Pamplona, pursue tornadoes across Oklahoma and black witches across Mexico, go cage shark diving in South Africa and get tear gassed in a riot in La Paz. (He was actually trying to cycle down the Death Road. In the end he had to abandon the attempt and take the bus down.) He also completed a nine hundred kilometre walk of the camino in Spain. Then he published SILK ROAD, and got a three book contract in London, and his love affair for life and for writing returned. "For me, the two things are inseparable. My passion for one infects the other." His fiction comes from dedicated research and what he calls a quest for Hemingway's ghost; characters with a passion for life, for love and the courage to face down their demons. You can now find Colin's books on Kindle where his entire list will be available by the end of the year; SILK ROAD was published in hardback and paperback by Corvus-Atlantic in London in 2011 and his new novel STIGMATA has just been released.
